In the NDIS environment, many organisations are feeling challenged to find people with the values needed to deliver quality, person-centred support. 

In this series of practical workshops, you will learn how Values-Based Recruitment (VBR) incorporates the assessment of values in the recruitment and candidate selection process, and how to develop and embed VBR in your organisation.

A recent study suggests that organisations taking a values-based approach to recruitment and retention are reaping the rewards. Organisations using a values based approach to recruitment and retention reported:

  • Better staff performance
  • Stronger values alignment in staff
  • Lower staff turnover
  • A positive return on investment

As a starter, we encourage you to visit the Values Based Recruitment Toolkit on the NDS website.
